A toddler in South Carolina was found driving a battery operated toy car down the street at 2am, and miraculously was found uninjured.

 

The youngster had apparently been put to bed at 9pm by his parents, but was found by a woman as he roamed the streets in his nappy and pyjamas in the early hours.

 

According to Fox News, small tyre tracks led the authorities back to the youngster’s home, where his surprised parents were warned to lock the doors at night.

 

 

"We're fortunate that this thing didn't end badly. He could have been struck by a vehicle. He could have been picked up by a person," Sumter County Sheriff's spokesman Ken Bell said. 

 

"We're very fortunate a Good Samaritan took him to a home where there was another good person who called law enforcement.

 

“If a small child like that gets out like that it could get hit by a car, or an animal or a dog could attack them and of course we don’t want that.

 

“We want our children to be safe.”

 

According to reports, no charges will be filed against the youngster's parents.
